on cdc numbers. >> so, you know, i always watch with interest michelle obama as she gardens in the back and she gets her message out about exercising and eating right, but that's michelle obama. what about the candidates themselves? are they looking at this as serious as it is? >> right. they both say that they are looking at it. so president obama has already mandated healthier school lunches, and his office says he wants to do even more to make school lunches healthier. of course there's the let's move campaign from his wife. we reached out to the romney campaign because we couldn't find anything on their website about obesity. and the campaign did not get back to us. but we did see that in 2007, romney said yes, we ought to have healthier school lunches, but he was very clear. he said i don't want the federal government to mandate that. i want states and local school systems to do that on their own. >> and then i'm reading in the local paper this morning, and it's all over the wires as well about kids in america eating too much salt. in fact, eating as much salt as we are, grown-ups.

before and michelle obama. we heard some very good speeches at that convention, and barack obama's was not the best speech, but it was a good enough speech. >> and maria, talk about a little bit about how he talked that you are the change. you are the ones who changed everything. he put it back on people. was that effective that point? >> i do, suzanne, and i think that it was effective, because it had not been something that we have heard from him before and i agree with ana in that there is no way to compare the speech last night to the one he either did in 2004 or 2008. 2008 was lightning in a bottle, and they know that they could not have tried to recreate that, and what he tried to do was pragmatic and poetic poetry, and he was pragmatic, because he asked people to take ownership with him of the hope and change and in doing that, he sort of was kennediesque saying, we are in this together, and it is not that we should not ask how to do it alone, but how we can do it together. it was a change on the famous kennedy line and i also think that he was humble, and he taed about th

surprises here as well. >> some of the highlights, michelle obama is going to be speaking and jimmy carter and bill clinton will be speaking wednesday and that is always good? >> absolutely. what is interesting is that a lot of people say, boy, you don't want to share a stage with bill clinton and in fact, bill clinton is going to nominate president obama. he is the nomination speaker, and so, but he brings so much to the plate. number oner he is the most popular living ex-president right now and what does that include? swing voters and moderates and all of people upon whom the election may ride, and he is also extremely popular with the democratic base. clinton is kind of the good old days and that kind of remainind of him saying remember when i was president and things are great? well, that is the path that the president is on, and that is sort of the, he provides this backup for president obama as he nominates him. and it is clearly an emotional highlight for democrats who have always thought that president clinton was great. so he feels so many roles here reaching out to both the base

pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol

obama i talked to him about why he hasn't built more relationships with some of those washington insiders who could have helped get his agenda through. >> sometimes michelle and i not doing the circuit and going out to dinners with folks is perceived as us being cruel. it has more to do with us being parents. when we are in town here in washington in the evenings, 6:30 we want to be at the dinner table with our kids and i want to be helping with their homework. i think sometimes that is interpreted as me not wanting to be out there slapping backs and wheeling and dealing. >> if you are reelected your girls will be older and will probably have their own weekend plans. >> it is already starting to happen. >> do you think you might do more outreach with members of congress? >> my hope is that getting past this election people will have an opportunity to maybe step back and say the differences that divide us aren't as a important as the common bonds we have as americans. some of that i'm sure will require additional effort on my part hopefully. the other side, as well. >> in the docu
